Top news: This fall’s Money Talks was all about capital markets

What sort of fall would it be for Rockaway without Money Talks? This time around, we held this traditional event, where our teams meet with portfolio colleagues and guests from partner companies, at a tested location with a singular atmosphere: Žofín Restaurant by STONES Catering.

ROCKAWAY INSIDER with Adam Rapák (Group PR & Content Manager at DODO)

Adam Rapák became the PR manager at the DODO logistics technology group a mere month ago, but it’s already clear that he deserves his place among the most inspirational members of the Rockaway family. Not only because he came by his extensive experience in a truly iconic company – at McDonalds Adam worked on PR projects for almost eight years – but also because lots of drum’n’bass fans know him as DJ Schooler.

Filip Široký: I like the idea that we can make a mark in the world from Prague

At the age of 15, he was already convinced that he’d devote his life to CERN, and though during university his interests took a different direction, he did make an appearance at the European Organization for Nuclear Research – and not only as probably the youngest trainee in history, but later also as the youngest employee. However, one short meeting with Rockaway Blockchain Fund head Viktor Fischer catapulted him from Geneva back to the Czech Republic, and for the past half-year now Filip Široký has been working at the Fund as a Research Associate. “Working for RBF allows me to not only be part of an amazing collective, but also to constantly discuss new technologies and build the largest crypto fund in Europe,” he says.

ROCKAWAY INSIDER with Zlata Holušová (Founder and Director of Colours of Ostrava)

Both last year and the year before, with a heavy heart she had to postpone this huge cultural festival, and this year she was finally back in her element. Colours of Ostrava director Zlata Holušová lives and breathes for the festival, something that’s evident from every answer. And as much as she likes being part of this musical whirlwind, she likes to return to where there’s peace and quiet and life flows with a more subtle rhythm. Read another issue of the Insider with an inspiring personality from Rockaway’s portfolio.

ROCKAWAY INSIDER with Lukáš Janoušek (CEO Campiri)

The successful founder of tech companies joined forces with Rockaway thanks to his on-line camper van sharing platform. When he’s talking about his business, one thing is immediately clear: Campiri CEO Lukáš Janoušek doesn’t think up projects just to make a profit, but above all so they make people happy and make real sense. “And so they make the world at least a bit better place,” he says in his interview for Rockaway Insider.
